From the Miskatonic Museum

Matt Szafran created this intriguing clay tablet from the Miskatonic Museum collection. Given his professional experience with actual tablets the entire thread is a goldmine of useful information. He also posted the source PDF for the letter pictured below, which includes a translation of the cuneiform writing and some interesting speculation.

The Only Good Imp is a Dead Imp

Given the number of imp heads on display at his site it's safe to say that artist Diego M. Rodriguez has earned the "Imp Slayer" achievement.  Browse his gallery and  you'll see they aren't the only supernatural nuisances he's exterminated.

Stocking Stuffers

If you're looking for some Mythos stocking stuffers I just happen to have a few items up on Ebay.  I'll be adding more listings later this week.

The Stars Are Right

Artist Josh Yelle has posted some snapshots of the beautiful paper props he produced for the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's "Brotherhood of the Beast" project.  The set includes a functional chart for determining exactly when the stars are right.  As you would expect, the craftsmanship is outstanding. My thanks to Joe Shea for giving me a heads up.

Fallout Props

Ammnra Creations has posted a tutorial video for a slew of minor Fallout props.

The video opens with the most interesting segment- how he recreated the game's IV drugs, including Rad-Away. It turns out Bethesda based the label on a marketing prop used by Touch Branding. They literally plopped a prop blood bag into a scanner, scanned the label, and removed the marketing references. For a game that was in development for six years.

Click through on the YouTube logo in the player below to open up the full sized version of the video.
